60 Days in, Gundam SEED Freedom Shatters Records with 4.1 Billion Yen Earnings

On its remarkable 60-day journey in Japanese cinemas, "Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Freedom" has not just soared; it has rewritten the records for the Gundam saga. With an awe-inspiring collection of 4.1 billion yen (approximately 27.1 million USD) from 2.43 million tickets sold since its premiere on January 26, 2024, this cinematic masterpiece has become the highest-grossing Gundam film to date.

This remarkable milestone demonstrates the Gundam franchise's lasting appeal and rising fandom, which is famed for its sophisticated storytelling, intriguing characters, and, of course, iconic Mobile Suits. "Gundam SEED Freedom" demonstrates the series' ongoing influence and capacity to engage people across decades.

A tribute to 20 years of Gundam SEED

To commemorate its 60th day in theaters and the 20th anniversary of the Gundam SEED franchise, the official Gundam YouTube channel has posted a special video (currently region locked). This montage includes scenes from the original Gundam SEED anime series and the most recent "Gundam SEED Freedom" film, all set to the stirring tones of T.M. Revolution's "Meteor," the series' insert song. This gesture not only commemorates the success of the new film, but also honors the journey and progress of the Gundam SEED plot over the last two decades.

WORLDWIDE REACH (see schedules)

The phenomenon of "Mobile Suit Gundam SEED FREEDOM" is not limited to Japan. With plans to release the picture in 56 countries and territories, the Gundam franchise is poised to attract a worldwide audience. Already, over 15 nations, including the United States, the Philippines, and Hong Kong, have confirmed screenings, demonstrating the Gundam series' global appeal. This global rollout ensures that fans from all over the world can witness the latest chapter in this epic narrative.


Set in the Cosmic Era year 75, the story continues amid persistent battles for independence and invading threats from Blue Cosmos. In an effort to calm the situation, a global peacekeeping organization called Compass is founded, with Lacus Clyne serving as its first president. Kira Yamato and his allies fight in a variety of battles as members of Compass. Amid these disputes, the Emerging Countries Foundation offers a coordinated operation with Compass to take down Blue Cosmos' headquarters, setting the stage for an epic clash.
